Request a Tutorial

Posted 05 October 2009 - 05:40 PM

Most other forums have this topic I think that maybe the Graphics Design forum could use it. Is there a specific effect that you are trying to achieve but just can't seem to do it? Is there a function of Adobe Photoshop that you just can't figure out? Or Fireworks? Or possibly even in GIMP?

Leave a reply to this topic and maybe somebody will be able to help you out.

I'm not quite sure what you mean - would that be a conversion chart of pixels, inches, etc. and then common paper and icon sizes, or....
Could you please explain that? I would be happy to make that tutorial if only I knew what you were asking.

Yep - I do that kind of thing, so if anyone has any tutorials they want I'll be happy to write them. I know my way around Photoshop, Inkscape, Illustrator, and some others.

Re: Request a Tutorial

Posted 23 September 2010 - 06:34 AM

Gimp has some very handy effects, and can do some pretty good stuff... however, it crashes on me a lot. So, I was wondering if some one could write a tutorial on how to do the Gimp 'sparkle' effect in Photoshop cs4-cs5. Its one of my most favorite effects, and I love to use it a lot. It can blend in well with some other cool effects in Photoshop.
Thanks!

I am pretty good with Photoshop, but still always learning something new. I would love a tutorial on creating a post-apocalyptic Chicago with chunks taken out of buildings, shards of glass and broken windows everywhere, cracks in the streets, etc.

How do I reply to a request?

Sorry I'm new here. I just want to know, if I want to answer this by giving you a tutorial, should I just answer it here or create new topic? If I create new topic, how would they know that I'm answering them?

You would submit a tutorial in the tutorial section, and when it is approved drop a note here.

This is called photo-manipulation. To give you an idea you should see some examples. You can google "photo manipulation". To be more precise on your question, go to deviantart.com, there are a lot of examples there (http://inobras.deviantart.com/art/Skolkovo-Saint-Petersburg-341468527).

This is a hard concept. You should start with something a little more simple, like broken windows effect, cracks in the streets. After that you can try to combine those effects and create your "post-apocalyptic Chicago".

Broken windows effect:
1. Find a resource image from http://www.freeimage...m/photo/1181194
2. open it in photoshop and convert to black and white picture (very basic way, Ctrl+shift+U)
3. play with contrast, ctrl+L to open level and adjust the parameter to get black more black and white more white.
4. save the file as jpeg
5. import the broken windows file to a normal window picture.
6. set the effect layer above the normal window layer.
7. set blending mode of the effect layer to screen. so it removes the dark pixel and shows only the effect.
8. use selection tool, eraser, layer mask, etc. to eraser a pixel that you want it to look like a hole.

FYI - be cognizant of the date folks submitted tutorial requests and evaluate if it makes sense to respond to someone 3+ years back who hasn't logged in since around that time too.
